comments leading up to the united nations, his press conference, very strong about israel. you know, we've been talking about how u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon and perhaps even the supreme leader of iran himself said, you may want to tone it down. so israel launched -- or issued this statement even before he spoke, saying his words against israel are horrible. and then he went on and he talked about this kind of world, you know, domination by the united states and others, talking for a new world order. but he didn't necessarily even mention israel by name. he was very subdued, i think. and everybody was a little disappointed. they were looking for vintage ahmadinejad, because he's leaving. this is his last u.n. general assembly. >> nonetheless, the u.s. candidate and israel were not present during that. >> there was like nobody in the hall. you know, we've seen people walking out in previous years, it was pretty much empty. >> they didn't even come in. >> what he did talk about was a double standard. i want to play a little bit of this on the nuclear weapons and then i want to talk
of this administration in total disarray. you had the united nations ambassador and the presidential press secretary sunday after the event saying things we now know were totally false. there is a report that came out last night i think on abc and fox both that they actually knew 24 hours in advance there was real danger there. >> and the ambassador's diary likewise. >> you have a president who even after his press secretary conceded it was a terrorist attack is still going back to his fantasy version that this is caused by some terribly stupid movie. over two weeks of this. an american ambassador and three other americans dead and collapse of our position in benghazi totally. a large number of cia agents who left town the next day. more than known we had there by the way and the news media says mitt romney's timing was terrible. give me a break. >> he was unable to make the argument. he doesn't present an alternative. >> this is one of my great frustrations with conservatives. i'm not talking about you. you're right. the media hasn't been following this story as much as it could have but if you wer
to encourage the international community, the united nations, to keep the pressure on the iranian regime, to pursue sanctions, to pursue them -- diplomatic pressure where and when we have the opportunity. unfortunately, those opportunities are becoming less and less obvious. they are less and less effective. the preferred option always will be and remains these alternatives to keeping the pressure on on iran to bring about more acceptable behavior. trying to shift to the attitude of this regime and their leadership has proven to be enormous the challenging. >> my question was do you or do you not endorsed the prime minister of israel's red line. >> the israelis are going to make their own decisions. they will consult with their allies. they will continue to signal clearly their alarm over the nuclear ambitions of iran. we will continue to work with them, but these are sovereign decisions. i think it's fair to say that the united states, canada, still believe that the effective use of sanctions and diplomacy will be the preferred option in trying to bring about corrections in the directio

going head to head against the president of the united states. >> i want to read you something that came out of the "national journal" in a thing called defying gravity and it talks about people talking about the economy going bad. they wrote, perhaps the most concerning for romney is obama is winning a healthy share of votes from people who thing he has steered the country off course. one out of four obama supporters in the most recent all state "national journal" heartland monitor poll said that the country was on the wrong track, but they're voting for the president anyway. that's what demying gravity looks like. >> they want a door oust the room. they tlirng obama is a nice guy but they're not going there. they don't know mitt romney is the door out of the room. he hasn't said, we're going to take economy and put it in yours. people want change but if you're not going to get change, you'll take security. >> a majority of the voters now approve of the president's doing and the economic pressure is soaring. those are the two indicators. people know we were in a very deep hole and peopl
strong as a nation and as allies. particularly the united states of america will always be there. iran being one big exception to all of this. we can talk about iran, but i think everybody pretty much understands where we are. i did not see an immediate breakthrough in the peace process. i think israel is secure, and about sense that their political situation and allowed them to make the kind of compromises or offers the move them forward. that is complicated. with respect to the other companies in the gulf area, a couple things strike me. even though it is not the kind of institution that i would think would provide the wherewithal, but to some extent, they represent some sort of institution that the people looked to. they all are wealthy for the most part. they can provide for their people and keep things under control even though you have some disturbances in bahrain that the doctor said, the saudis are not going to let that get out of control. having the evolution will be much lower in those parts of the area. i remember talking to a senior official from one of those countries, and
it wasn't just top espn, deadspin or online sports websites, it was national news. >> it was the president of the united states. >> yeah, him, too. >> it was bill clinton oyour show. "morning joe." and that got the most publit by of wa oount interview with president clinton, which was very interesting. it was also all manner of politicians from across the board. from not just the president but small-town mayors to people like scott walker and paul ryan. i mean, that's really like turned it into a big story. it's like, w, s er e same person who doesn't think we need trained union teachers and firefighters really believes that we need trained union officials on the field for the nfl. it turned it into the kind of story that could not be contained by the sports pa. >> paul ryanants these guys to have exact theameen the nanyb else to have. >> yeah. and that turns it into all kinds of fodder that really does transcend the sports world. >> i was going to sit back in chicago and say nothing because i like dave, but seriously, you guysolitizthit paic by the way, these refs, you know what the diff
